Parallel was certainly made with Fritz Lang's "Metropolis". Even though the Lang's story is in many ways opposite to Wilde's, they both have the main character which possesses an "artificial intelligence" so to say. Having a reference to "Metropolis" and using the vision of a futuristic city created not long after Wilde's time seemed like a good environment for my setting of The Happy Prince.

The atmosphere of the Happy Prince reminds me a lot of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis", especially on the third picture. Don't know if it’s done on purpose or not, because you did not mention it at all, but that certainly could be an incredibly effective metaphor on many levels.
